The lovely Helene of Willow Poetry has challenged us with “What do you See?”.  This is a wonderful photo for the Halloween season!  You may write a poem, haiku, tanka or short story that represents what you see or feel within you.  More info can be found in the link below.

I watch, perched high in yonder tree, as she creates this spell of mystery; she’s chosen from her favorite book, some herbs thrown in, perhaps to cook. And when it finally starts to dance, its flame of colors, indeed, entrance; this humble owl, whose eyes glow bright, it’s bewitching hour, on this ebon night. There isn’t time to be discreet, just taste the nectar, salty sweet; then wait to see what you turn into, when you imbibe, on a witch’s brew.

She’ll turn you into eye of newt

Or perhaps a fuzzy kiwi fruit

Or maybe a frog, with luscious legs

Or even a hen, to lay some eggs

Perhaps the wing of an errant bat

Or a bowl of milk, for her black cat

She’ll turn you into what she wishes

And you can bet, you’ll be delicious
